Users can log on to www.nari.nic.in to access information on different programmes offered by various state governments as well as the Centre, the minister told reporters.

The NARI portal carries details on 350 different schemes for women and will be updated from time to time.

The schemes are divided into seven different categories — education, health, employment, housing and shelter, addressing violence, decision making and social support.

Gandhi also unveiled a website for NGOs called e-SAMVAD, an interactive portal allowing NGOs to contact the ministry and share their feedback, suggestions, grievances and their best practices.

Interacting with the press, the minister said the government will initiate a trial run of mobile phones with a panic button from 26 January in Uttar Pradesh.

Although the government in an order in April 2016 made it mandatory for all mobile phone manufacturers to provide a panic button feature in cell phones from January 2017, its implementation has been delayed.

The move aims at improving security for women by providing them with a tool to alert the local police.
